This pentacle , worn as a pendant , depicts a pentagram , or five-pointed star, used as a symbol of Wicca by many adherents. Wicca ( English pronunciation: / ˈ w ɪ k ə / ) is a modern pagan , witchcraft religion . It was developed in England during the first half of the 20th century and it was introduced to the public in 1952 by Gerald Gardner , a retired British civil servant.
Wicca is a Neopagan religion and a religious movement found in various countries throughout the world. It was first popularised in 1954 by a British civil servant named Gerald Gardner after the British Witchcraft Act was repealed. He claimed that the religion, of which he was an initiate, was a modern survival of an old witchcraft religion, which had existed in secret for hundreds of years, originating in the pre-Christian Paganism of Europe. Wicca is thus sometimes referred to as the Old Religion.

Spellcasting 101 - an Introduction Many say that Wicca/Witchcraft is their religion or their spiritual path. They view the components of the Craft as something they DO separate from their normal lives. In otherwords, they reserve their "witchiness" for special occassions, much like the Sunday/Holyday-Christians. What I am about to teach you is that you are not separate from your spiritual path, your "witchiness", your Craft...You ARE all of these, every single waking/sleeping moment of your life.

One thing I’m typically seen lugging around is a camera. Most camera bags are overkill, especially when you just want a bit of protection walking around, or you’re packing a camera in another bag for a short trip. I picked up a nice looking, heavy wool remnant from the Pendleton outlet last weekend, so I figured I could try my hand at a simple camera wrap. Now I’ve got just the right amount of walk-around camera protection without the “tourist look.” — Matt See the full how-to after the jump! Making a structured camera with soft fabric is kinda crazy unless you use a stiff liner, so I was aiming for more of a protective wrap.

Most people only think that there is one way to sleep: Go to sleep at night for 6-8 hours, wake up in the morning, stay awake for 16-18 hours and then repeat. Actually, that is called a monophasic sleep cycle , which is only 1 of 5 major sleep cycles that have been used successfully throughout history. The other 4 are considered polyphasic sleep cycles due to the multiple number of naps they require each day. How is this possible?
